The heart and the soul of the house

The lane that leads to the small white cottage curves a little. Grass grows up the middle of this narrow track. At night, once more, the lights shine through small windows and illuminate the stony yard.
It makes us smile.
Inside the heart of the house sits once more, home, with his shadow, the pied cat, Nadolig.

Oh I am so glad. I have been following your blog since just when your friend went away and I too, have wanted to see him back at home with the light in the window and his cat by his side. Thank-you for sharing your lovely neighborhood and life with us. Blessings, Debra

Nadolig must be so very happy to have his lap back!

I was so afraid he wouldn't back - I nearly stopped reading your new posts because I was worried about what I might read. Just the same as when Maurice went walk-about.

So pleased things have turned out well!
